Easily calculate the girth and volume weight.


The DPD Girth Calculator helps you measure your parcel quickly and simply. The maximum parcel measurements are:

  • Length: 175 cm (longest side)
  • Girth: 300 cm  
  • Weight: 31.5 kg

Volume weight: calculator for air transport.

We look at volume weight and actual weight for airfreight rates. Our invoice is based on the higher figure. The volume weight indicates how much space a parcel occupies in relation to its weight. This is calculated according to the Air Cargo Tariff and Rules (TACT) compiled by IATA (International Air Transport Association)

Use the following formula to calculate the volume weight:

Length x width x height in cm / 5.000

Maximum volume weight: 200 kg

The volume weight applies to DPD International Express parcels.
